5 Functional But Beautiful Features to Include in Your Home

July 30, 2021

When creating your dream home or reimagining your current one, there’s no need to compromise between functionality and aesthetics. With stunning features that enable you to enjoy your new spaces to the fullest, you can have the best of both worlds. Read on to explore some of our favorite features we’ve incorporated into home designs.

1. LED Light Strips

Have you ever wandered into your bathroom late at night, stumbling and bumping into your vanity along the way? Well, say goodbye to those frustrating moments and hello to LED strip lighting. By placing minimal lighting beneath your bathroom vanity, you can keep your bathroom lit as needed and create a relaxing ambiance for your space.

Further, you can also equip your kitchen with this lighting solution to brighten up your counters and see the once shaded spots underneath cabinets clearly. The same also applies to your pantry.

2. Heightened Windows

One of the best ways to create welcoming spaces in your home is to fill them with natural light, making your rooms feel spacious and airy no matter their square footage. However, many home designs bypass opportunities to enlist the help of natural light to make getting ready easier than ever.

One such opportunity is to place a window in your shower, giving you a unique design feature that also provides light that minimizes the risk of shaving blunders and turns your beautifully tiled shower from feeling like a dark dungeon into a spa-like escape.

Further, you can place high windows within your closet if it uses an external wall. Doing so will help transform a cramped closet into a bright, airy space for you to effortlessly view your clothes.

3. Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

Looking to get the most bang for your buck in your home renovation or build? Opt for vinyl flooring over hardwood to achieve the elegantly elevated look of wood planks without breaking the bank. These flooring options come in countless varieties and stains to mimic any design that their hardwood counterparts could offer.

4. Custom Built-Ins and Cabinetry

Custom built-ins and cabinetry provide an ideal solution to unorganized kitchens, cluttered displays, and hectic closets. When creating a space for your use, make it perfectly suited for your needs for effortless storage and logical arrangements.

5. An Open Floor Plan

An open floor plan is a hallmark of contemporary design, offering homeowners a seamless flow throughout their house for ideal entertaining spaces and fluid decor. This functional floor plan allows you to have flexibility with your home with the possibility of redecorating or rearranging your spaces without the need for an extensive reworking of your home’s bones.
